An architectural gem in southeast Evanston

Designed in 1910 by the architect team of Spencer and Powers and built in 1911, this stunning “Prairie Tudor” home is situated on tree-lined Forest Ave in Southeast Evanston. Robert Spencer had worked with Frank Lloyd Wright and you’ll see his influence throughout the home.

Most of the fixtures in the 6-bedroom, 3 ½ bath home are original and in excellent working condition. The home’s unusual features include an umbrella stand in the foyer with its own built-in drainage. The location at 1025 Forest Ave is only steps away from Lee Street Beach.

Broker Sally Mabadi and Director of Luxury Marketing Caitlyn Terrell from Koenig & Strey walk us through this meticulously preserved home, which is listed for sale at $1,600,000.
